The Price River Trail, a riverside walking trail and scenic attraction in Price, Utah, received an amazing upgrade. Now, when you park at the beginning of the trail at 600 South Carbon Avenue, you can start your trek with a warm-up workout.
Outdoor Exercise Equipment by Playcraft Systems
The new outdoor exercise equipment was provided and installed by LuckyDog Recreation and custom manufactured by Playcraft Systems. This model of “ExerCraft” by Playcraft includes two fitness towers with 3-positions fitness stations on each tower; the equipment that includes a chest press, crunch station, cross trainer, leg press and more.
Shade Structures by Custom Canopies
The shade shelter for this project was manufactured by Custom Canopies, and is a cinch to put up in the spring and take down in late fall. Russell Seeley, City Engineer says that price doesn’t get much snow, so the snow load on the custom shade structure is not an issue. However, in winter months they do get a lot of wind. So the fabric shade is stored during the winter months. As part of the bid package, the city did purchase a 2nd fabric shade for future use.
Customers that remove their fabric shade during the off-season have been using the same fabric shade for 10 plus years without having to replace it. It’s tough stuff! a lot of folks think that the Utah and Idaho climate is too harsh for fabric shades, but I always tell them, “Think about Florida they get hurricane winds! and they use fabric shades on all their playgrounds.”
Contractor Required to Have Bonding, Permits, Inspections
The Price River Trail parking lot improvements were a public works project requiring the awarded contractor to be bonded. City building permits and inspections were also required. Because LuckyDog Recreation is a full-service company, projects of this size and scope are done turn-key allowing the owners flexibility and added assurance that the project will be done right from concept to completion.
Because the construction of the project is near the river, special consideration was made for a high water table. The equipment was mounted on a concrete pad on which the pour-in-place surfacing was laid. The footers for the shade structure are spread footers allowing more ground surface to bear on.
The pour-in-place surfacing is a 50/50 mix of tan (all new material) and black (recycled material). Mixing the black recycled material with any color makes it more cost effective. Much like carpet for your home, adding a sprinkle of dark color can hide a lot of spills.
Placing fall resilient surfacing under exercise equipment is not a requirement, however, the City of Price wanted the added user-comfort and the attractive look that the seamless, slip resistant surface brings to the aesthetics of the site.
